Good Morning Porch Friends, I think I'm caught up now!
Mariane, I'm praying right now for those precious boys--both of them, but especially the younger one with his concerns. He's a sensitive child and has had to endure more than a child should have to. He's blessed to have you and John, as well as his dad in his life, and I think God is giving you real wisdom in comforting him. May his heart be mature enough to realize that even when God does take loved ones, it's not a forever thing with those who know the Lord.
Yay, Debbie--so glad to see you back. You're a ray of sunshine.
Barb, I think your family will love North Carolina. I hope all goes well with their move.
Joanney, I'm glad God has shown you his grace and made you an example of it.
Congratulations, Laurie, on your special anniversary.
Welcome always, Tomoral.
Don, That song blesses me so much! Thank you for posting it.
Love your encouraging words, as always, Edy.
Carol, I've been wondering if you've fully recovered from your surgery and how you're doing. I get a one-year check-up in October for kidney stones, and I'm praying i'll get a good report.
Carole, I'm thankful for the grace God gave you when you needed it most.
AND I have news!
Second granddaughter is pregnant. So now the older one will have a baby about March 2, and the younger one will have one about April 1. The girls are close and live in the same time--looking forward to their children's cousin time!
AND I have more news. With the help of a friend who has an editing/publishihg company, I am publishing a book of poetry--most of it from challenge entries. My granddaughters are the graphic designers. I am so excited about this. My husband gave me the money for our anniversary to make my publishing dream come true. I have poems in categories of nature, inspiration, personal reflections, and just for fun. I hope it's published before the year is out. It will be in print and on Kindle and Nook. I have been so busy with editing and organizing and planning that I've not been to the porch much, but I still think of you all and pray for you!
